There will be considerable media coverage of our journey and
preparation, both in Durham and other university towns, but
also in the national press of Britain and other European
countries. Emma Sykes, director of Emma Sykes PR will
be managing our publicity.
We are asking you to sponsor our journey. The total cost is
estimated to be £8000. On top of this we aim to raise at
least £20 000 for the charities we have selected. If you are
able to cover the basic cost in total or part, we will
publish your logo and any desired wording on the side of our
boat. We will also ensure that we mention you in any media
Our basic costs are:
The Boat £4000.
The Blades £1000.
Accomodation and Food £2000.
This is an unaided expedition - we will have no ground
support and will be staying in campsites or with friendly
boat clubs along the route. We have kept costs to an absolute
minimum to ensure that WaterAid and the WWF get as much money
as possible. If you would like more information about
sponsorship oppotunities, then please contact us here.
